Mahama out; Duffuor to lead NDC in 2024 – Report

According to the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), if the National Democratic Congress is led by a new candidate, they will have a higher chance of winning the 2024 elections.

The EIU, on the other hand, observes that it is aware that former President John Mahama, who led the NDC to defeat in 2016 and 2020, is planning a comeback.

“The next parliamentary and presidential elections are due in 2024. Under constitutionally mandated term limits, the incumbent president, Mr Akufo-Addo, cannot run for a third term. The former president, John Mahama, is reportedly considering running again, but we expect the opposition NDC to try to revitalise its prospects with a fresh candidate,” the latest report of the EIU said.

It added: “Our baseline forecast is that ongoing public dissatisfaction with the slow pace of improvements in governance—such as infrastructure development, job creation and easing of corruption—will trigger anti-incumbency factors and push the electorate to seek a change. The NDC, therefore, stands a reasonable chance of winning the 2024 elections”.

The development comes in the wake of reports that former Governor of the Central Bank who is also a former Finance Minister Dr Kwabena Duffuor is lacing his boot to contest in the flagbearer race of the opposition party.
